In this Master Seminar (formerly Hauptseminar), each student is asked to select one topic from the list below. In order to successfully complete the seminar, participants have to fulfill these requirements:
- Presentation: The selected paper is presented to the other participants (20 minutes presentation 10 minutes questions). Use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint CAMPmaster.pot, or Latex: CAMP-latex-template.zip.
- Written Handout: A document of maximum 8 pages is written and submitted one week after the presentation. Please download and use the llncs2e.zip Latex template.
- Attendance: Participants have to participate actively in all seminar sessions.
Each presentation is followed by a discussion and everyone is encouraged to actively participate. The handout must include all references used and must be written completely in your own words
. Copy and paste wont be tolerated. Both handout and presentation have to be done in English
Interested students, please take a look at the papers listed below and select one you would like to base your seminar talk on. Then please send an email to Loren Schwarz
(), including your paper choice, your name, your birthday, program of study and Matrikelnummer.
Please choose one of the following papers for your seminar presentation. For obtaining the full-text PDFs, please use Google and especially Google Scholar. In case you are interested in a paper but cannot find the full text, please e-mail us.
Please send a mail to Loren Schwarz () until May 15th with your preferred topic.
